Dear Friends of Nairobi National Park
Our next members meeting on Saturday 26th March will be a field trip to the Athi Kapiti ranches to look for cheetah! For those of you who don’t know the area, this is home to 24 wild cheetah just kilometers out of Nairobi. We expect a tour full of surprises.
The tour will introduce you to the newly formed Athi Kapiti Conservancy which aims to secure land and wildlife adjacent to Nairobi National Park. This FoNNaP trip is a sneak preview of what is underway in this vast wildlife filled landscape. We will meet at Small World Country club on the Mombasa Highway just after Athi River. From there take a game drive through Game Ranching Ltd and possibly other ranches.

Experts will be on hand including Sandy Simpson, founding member of the Athi Kapiti Conservancy, and raptor specialist Simon Thomsett, the Athi Kapiti conservancy manager who has lived in the area for the last 40 years. Read his super raptor blog here.
